Rock legends AC/DC have shared a gritty visual treatment for “Demon Fire,” a cut from their acclaimed comeback album Power Up.
The animated clip depicts an action-packed car chase through a post-apocalyptic hellscape lit by ominous red light. The band make their presence felt throughout the video, appearing on neon billboards and screens towed by massive semi-trucks. “Demon fire is all you desire / Demon fire, it glows in its fire / Demon fire, flames burn higher / Demon fire, it’s an all-out hellfire,” vocalist Brian Johnson snarls on the chorus.
Power Up, which dropped in November, is the band’s first album since 2014’s Rock or Bust. It marks Johnson’s return to the band after hearing loss prevented him from performing during the Rock or Bust tour from 2015 to 2016, where he was temporarily replaced by Guns N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose. Power Up is also the first album the band recorded since co-founder Malcolm Young passed away in 2017 due to complications arising from dementia.
AC/DC frontman Angus Young has hinted at more new material in store, riding on the momentum of Power Up’s success. “There’s still plenty of ideas and stuff. As soon as I’m finished with an album, I start looking for the next song,” he told Classic Rock.
